Attention All Students!
Are you a high school or college student? Does your school have an anime club or club devoted to Asian culture? Are you the president or vice president? You're in luck! You can get into Pacific Media Expo (PMX) 2008 for FREE by participating in the essay discussion/contest and online link exchange!

Pacific Media Expo (PMX) will be giving out free 3-day passes to the president and vice president of high school/college anime clubs or club devoted to Asian culture. Just follow the instructions below, and you're on your way to enjoying PMX for free! (Bring your entire club too! 20% off membership prices for groups of 5 or more! Click here for details)

1. Register.

Use this form to apply for Student Asian Media Summit Passes for your club's President and/or Vice President. Your advisor may also request a non-Summit free pass in step #2 below.

2. Qualify.

Download this PDF form and print it out on your school letterhead or stationery. Have your club advisor fill out and sign their section, then mail it to the address at the bottom of the form. The deadline for submissions is November 8th at noon at the Programming Operations office. Essays must be received by midnight November 6.

3. Attend.

All students who registered using this form and qualified must pick up your badge at the Programming Operations office by Saturday, November 8 at noon.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I want to register my Secretary and Treasurer. Can I do that?
A: No. The Student Asian Media Summit Pass Registration is open to only the President and Vice President of your club.

Q: I don't know where to buy school letterhead. What do I do?
A: Ask your club advisor to print out the form for you so they can get it to you on letterhead. I'm sure they won't have any problem giving this to you since PMX is anime/Asian culture, language, lifestyle, media-related which is the purpose of your club, after all.

Q: My advisor is mean and won't print stuff on letterhead for our club! Help!
A: Give us your advisor's email address and we'll see if we can help you out. Advisor email address cannot be from any of the free email services like yahoo, gmail, or hotmail, etc.; they must have a valid .edu or .k12.ca.us email address and they must respond to us. If you give us an email address and it bounces or we don't get a response before the November 5th deadline, we will not approve your delegate badges.
